NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. (PRWEB) September 17, 2014
Forty years ago, it took a book to inform author Marcia W. Posner of what was happening to Jews in Europe. She too, has written a book not only to inform readers of how Holocaust survivors suffered, but also how they built themselves a new life, a place to educate future generations about the Holocaust, and significantly, how everyone can build their own paths to helping each other.
“ZACHOR: NOT ONLY TO REMEMBER” (published by Xlibris) is a historical memoir that describes the inspiration and striving of people who dreamed of and brought to reality the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center. It is also a compendium of the Holocaust experiences of the survivors and liberators as well as the lessons learned from their tragic experience that no one can afford to be a bystander. The author of the first two chapters is Irving Roth. He describes what the Center and more specifically, what Boris Chartan, Thomas Gulotta, Simon Zareh, Ike Blachor, and he, contributed to the founding and directing of the Center in its first years.
“I want readers to learn from the survivors what they experienced and how they suffered but also exalted, having “beat” their tormentors and built a new beautiful life. I want them to learn how a group of people joined together to create a reality from a dream,” says Posner.
“ZACHOR: NOT ONLY TO REMEMBER” is about camaraderie, trust, hope in the future, and determination; and to never ever stop working towards one’s goals. It is memoir; it is history; it is inspirational and it is instructive for others to follow
